The 19th century has been called the “Century of the Piano” and most composers of that time wrote music for the piano, if not for piano solo then with the piano as a collaborator with other instruments or singers. The century also saw technical advances in manufacture of pianos that made mass production and mass marketing a reality. As a result and coupled with an emerging middle class, the piano soon became a feature of many homes in Europe and the Americas.
The 19th century is also what is known now as the Romantic period in Western Art Music. Inspired by trends in literature and art of this era, in music there was a shift from the defined classical forms of the 18th century towards more expressive content in whatever form it might take. This re-emphasis engendered a lot of music of a more introspective and intimate character much more suited to preforming and listening in smaller settings, as opposed to the concert hall or opera house (also on the rise in the 19th century). The music selected for this CD typifies for me music to listen and ponder over in these smaller settings – living room, salon at night with a small group of listeners. 19th century home entertainment.
